Subject: Quite good
Interesting to see how many of the early traditions are still being followed today, and how many of the roles for women are entrenched in today's society. Interesting.

Subject: Martha Van Rensselaer
Martha Van Rensselaer, along with Flora Rose, were the first women to be granted a full professorships at Cornell University. READ MORE ABOUT HER LIFE HERE: http://rmc.library.cornell.edu/homeEc/bios/marthavanrensselaer.html
This book is a definitive guide to the home; from household measurements, textiles, family-home architecture, a guide to planning meals and budgeting, as well as planning home decor. It's quite fascinating.
